    HALA*SRK Pagal of SRK!!

    Don 2 - Music Review | Shah Rukh Khan | Don 2 Song Review | Shankar Ehsaan Loy

    Recreating classic hits is not an easy job, hence Shankar Ehsaan Loy who reconstructed hits like Khaike Paan Banaraswala, Main Hoon Don and Yeh Mera Dil for the Don remake in 2006 did not get as much of a fan following which the soundtrack of the original Don featuring Amitabh Bachchan cherishes till date. Many still prefer to listen the yesteryear's hit tracks. But now, the ball is in their court as Don 2 is a completely new concept and hence, there is no limit for creativity this time. It's always easier to draw on a blank page, rather than trace. So lets check out what the trio has for us this time.

    SRK kick starts the album with Aa Raha Hoon Palat Ke and right away sets the record that the "KING IS BACK".

    Follows next is the first superhit song of the album Zaraa Dil Ko Thaam Lo. Sung by Vishal Dadlani and Anusha Mani you will not instantly like this song. On the first hearing, its is not at all appealing, but mind you, it is slow poison. The song will grow on you over the time. Anusha Mani has the calmness in her voice and Vishal's vocals are the exact foil. If you still feel it is not a good song, wait and watch. The song is set to rule in future.

    Usha Uthup makes an appearance on the tracklist and she is back with a bang. Hai Ye Maya required a different voice texture and Usha does pretty well. If not for this lady, the song would have lacked the punch. Being not one of the conventional songs again this may take time to do the trick. The Remix version converts this song into the much familiar club version.

    Again one more song that is not what you perceive. Shankar Mahadevan croons Dushman Mera along with Sunitha Sarathy. The song seems to have the hangover of the 80's. It is fast and racy, adrenaline pumping track. Sure to swipe off a few off there feet.

    The King is Back with his trademark Don tune which is now as popular as James Bond and Mission Impossible. Sunitha Sarathy's vocals coupled up with S-E-L's sheer talent makes this theme song for an instant like.

    They say keep the best for the end. K.K brings back the hit number Main Hoon Don from the 2006 remake in a new avatar. Mujhko Pehchanlo is exactly the same title track from Don but with different lyrics and minute changes in composition in the interludes. The song also appears in a Remix avatar.

    The album concludes with a beautiful waltz titled The "Don" Waltz.

    Javed Akhtar again has the words in the right place. Shankar Ehsaan Loy has given Farhaan Akhtar what he wanted. Although the album misses a Chammak Chhalo kind of commercially hit number, Don 2 will be hot favourite for those avid listeners of music who go beyond the item songs and mushy romantic tracks.

    Don 2 is set to make a mark as far as the music is concerned. S-E-L have utilized the blank page optimally. This is one of the best albums by Shankar Ehsaan Loy in terms of creativity and novelty after the much acclaimed ZNMD. Again, Don 2 may not breathe fire instantly, it will take time to grow.

    Another thing which goes against this album is that it may spur up extremely diverse reactions, if one section of listeners may applaud the efforts of the composers others may pan it badly. Don 2 needs to get as many songs promoted before release, that will help the album as a whole.

    For SRK and Don fans, do not waste time, go for it.

    Agree with almost all counts, really need to give it repeated hearings. Not the sort of "instantly appealing" bubblegum pop tracks, this takes time to grow on you. And perfectly blends with the theme of the movie.

    I guess that explains a lot of the negative reactions
